Meydan Carnival – 07/02
4:15- Charlie Appleby runs three in this 1m 1f handicap. On jockey bookings the first choice seems to be Nordic Lights who was runner-up on his Meydan debut. The 4-year-old has only had the five career starts so is open to a bit more improvement and stall three looks ideal for this prominent runner. Symbolization will be ridden by James Doyle. He’s just had the eight career starts winning two of them. The colt is just 5lb higher than for his last win and ended last season beaten just a nose in a Chantilly listed race back in October. Meydan debut but in with a good chance from stall four, if fully tuned up. Connect is back down to the same mark as when winning a valuable 1m 2f Epsom handicap when trained by Clive Cox, last June. That win came on good to soft and if he handles today’s quicker ground, he has to be considered a likely contender.
Verdict: Connect has each way claims on his first start for new connections although he maybe better with a bit more cut in the ground. Nordic Lights is a solid favourite but It would surprise me to see his stablemate Symbolization get the better of him on his Meydan debut.
Symbolization – 9/2 @Bet365
Connect – 12/1 @ Bet365 – each way
